Street Scene (1931) 80m. Sylvia Sidney in film based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Elmer Rice. Director: King Vidor
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
"Street Scene is a 1931 black-and-white drama film produced by Samuel Goldwyn and directed by King Vidor. With a screenplay by Elmer Rice adapted from his Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Street Scene takes place on a New York City street from one evening until the following afternoon. Except for one scene which takes place inside a taxi, Vidor shot the entire film on a single set depicting half a city block of house fronts.
The movie stars Estelle Taylor, David Landau, Sylvia Sidney, William Collier, and Beulah Bondi (her screen debut). The music score is by Alfred Newman, his first complete film score. Newman composed the eponymous title theme, in the style of George Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue. The theme has been used in other movies, including Cry of the City, Kiss of Death, I Wake Up Screaming, Where the Sidewalk Ends, The Dark Corner, and as the overture to How to Marry a Millionaire."

This Is Why Old Movies Are The Best
This is a great adaptation of a great play. Set on a single block in front of brown stone that shows a movie does not need a lot of special effects to be thoroughly insightful.

An gem in the rough
This play involving a mix of ethnic and social diversity on a New York tenement street, explores some of the best and worst aspects of human nature.
Some of the characters found in this neighborhood include a Jewish Bolshevist and his family, a Norwegian couple, an Italian-German couple, an Irish couple and non-immigrant Americans, all thrown together into the 'great melting pot,' who socialize, argue, commit adulterous indiscretions, and interact on all levels during a couple of hot summer days in New York City.
If you are looking for an engaging plot involving intrigue or adventure, you might want to pass. If however, you are looking for off beat entertainment, this may be for you.
